Reagan and Revelations About Arms to Iran

December 09, 1986

President Reagan remains unrepentant. In the glare of daily revelations, the old actor huffs and puffs and blusters with indignation over being ill-used by the press, demonstrating for all to see that, like his friend, the attorney general, he is not only fuzzy in the ethics department but clearly does not know right from wrong.

It's too bad in light of these recent exposures, that all of Reagan's decisions (decisions that affect us most seriously and deeply such as: abandoning SALT II, vetoing the Clean Water Act, decisions that have negatively affected the poor, the public schools, health, the environment, minorities, etc.), cannot be rendered invalid in the same way that a will or other legal document may be contested by an individual or family when there is good cause to suspect that the maker of the document was senile or deranged.

The dissimilarities in scope, however, are vast. Where a will may affect the members of a family, the legacy Reagan has left affects on a much broader scale the whole human family.
